Leadership Development

Become the leader you strive to be with our property-specific leadership masterclasses and Emerging Leaders Programme, offering continuous improvement for the emerging and established leader.


Hey there, incredible leader

Are you ready for leadership development that goes beyond a ‘sit-and-listen’ seminar, and instead creates an immersive, active experience that leaves you with an ACTIONABLE game plan?

We see you.
You manage a team, or have a desire to lead, but that doesn’t make you a leader by default. True leaders want to enrich the lives of their people, lifting them up to do their best work and be their best selves.
So, how do you tap into that kind of expertise in the property realm?
Maybe you’re asking yourself:

πŸ‘‰πŸ» How can I take the next step in my leadership journey?

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ How can I lead authentically when I don’t fit the old-school stereotype of what a “leader” looks like?

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ How can I convey my message to my team in a way they’ll relate to and understand?

πŸ‘‰πŸΏ How can I bring people together and create a more inclusive workplace across the talent life cycle?

There’s just one thing standing in your way:
All of the leadership development programmes on offer are generic and lack an understanding of the property sector.
…or do they?

Meet the Emerging Leaders Programme

The Emerging Leaders Programme is a robust leadership development experience that brings together proven approaches to leadership development and experienced industry leaders to guide mentees on the path to career success.

β€―Innovative organisations know that long-term success requires a pipeline of emerging leaders who can be better equipped to take on new challenges.

It was with this ethos the Property Council Emerging Leaders Programme (ELP) kicked off in 2019 as an exclusive opportunity for Property Council members to enhance industry knowledge through shared experience.

In conjunction with our Programme Partner, JLL, we have built upon the original mentoring programme and crafted a highly personalised year-long leadership development experience for programme participants, featuring:

πŸ‘‰πŸ» An immersive in-person Emerging Leaders kick-off in Auckland.

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ  Monthly individual meetings with an experienced industry mentor committed to your success. Emerging Leaders and mentors will be paired for the year to enable a robust and enduring professional relationship.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½  Three Emerging Leaders β€˜lunch and learns’ throughout the year on critical leadership capabilities in today’s property market.

πŸ‘‰πŸΏ Our online Hono community with self-paced weekly group chats facilitated by Property Council, that focus on self-reflection and clarity regarding professional goals.

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Career coaching sessions with Property Council DevelopU leadership at six-month and nine-month intervals.

πŸ‘‰πŸΌΒ An opportunity to attend one complimentary Future Directions networking event in Auckland.

πŸ‘‰πŸ½Β The programme culminates in a celebratory wrap-up.

Note: While we strongly encourage in-person participation for the programme kick-off, there will be an opportunity to participate online for the opening session and β€˜lunch and learn’ sessions throughout the year.
